questions. maybe. >> she says fear mongering this idea of election fraud going on. >> she's never been to new jersey. >> dickerson: we've learned of massive mac on -- hack on united states government with isis. operative perhaps in the united states. this is a part of this new terrorism. is the united states prepared? >> not as prepared as we need to be john. of all the people engaged in this conversation. for seven years u.s. attorney in one of the places where there's significant terrorist activity in new jersey and new york. this is why i'm fighting so hard about this intelligence question. the action that we're talking by congress made our country weaker. >> dickerson: you can't enjoy your civil liberties if you're in a coffin. mike lowe said that was
political pornography meaning that you're trying to scare people, are you? >> no. i'm trying to tell them the truth. which they're grandstanding for political purposes. they don't know what they're talking about. i've done it. we can do this in a way that makes civil liberties safe and secure. if congress is secure, make sure that overstepping the line. bring them back in if we need to prosecute folks. they want to make the country more vulnerable. he can call me whatever he wants to call me i'm the guy who understands this stuff and done it. he's the guy who sits up on capitol hill and theorizes. >> dickerson: they hold hearing the director of national terrorism comes in, says oversight not blown if they're not giving the straight story. >> if every time somebody didn't
tell me 100% truth i wouldn't have of much of prosecutor. conduct oversight, they have lots of tools to conduct oversight they should be doing that. instead what they're doing is throwing tools out of our toolbox that can protect the american homeland. >> dickerson: the tools that you used the is that what you used metadata that's not a tool you used? >> no. but i'm aware of the i have kazoo of it how important it is to our efforts to protect ourselves in really dangerous world. so i understand how these things work. i understand what you have to do to put probable cause forward i've done these things. they're making up fiction. trying to scare people. i'm the person telling people the truth they're the folks who are scaring people for political gain. >> dickerson: now switch to the presidential conversation. your son jokes your second home.
you're a truth teller why don't you say you're running? >> i haven't made my mind up. but i will this month. i have a day job too you know? i have to work to make sure our budget gets passed. and let's remember something we're still eight months away from anybody voting. take a deep breath. >> dickerson: you say you're still making up your mind? are you stranding by the edge of the i'm going to go in but i don't want to go in this very second. >> it's a linear evolutionary decision making process. i go through all the different factors. when i'm done i check that off. the pack that i'm down now do i want to do it. do i want to do it. in my heart is it something that i really absolutely want to do. if i check that box then you'll hear me say i'll announce for president. >> dickerson: last night your
town hall, he likes you but he's also thinking about supporting somebody else. some of the things that he said about you might be gettable for you. he says his issue that you have too much baggage. multiple rating reductions in new jersey. what is your answer? >> i inherited a state five and half years ago that was a basket case. it wasn't going to reach payroll that had zero net private growth. when you start to clean up that kind of mess, and they wake up from these slumbers they were in, a huge problems we had during recession all the busts we had. they start to downgrade. i understand that. what they will see when they look at new jersey now created 186,000 private sector jobs in five years with eight years of no private sector job growth that we cut our budget back. we cut property taxes.
down grades, that connected that probably 40 of 50 states. >> dickerson: what you inherited, what the president said it's good, republicans hounded him for it. >> i'm in the going to say the same thing he said. he did inherit a bad economy. we know that. now problem for him is not so much the result, but what he's done. i don't think what he's done has been the right prescription. >> here is the second thing that our voters he like your bluntness. but he thinks you're too risky as candidate and possibly as president. what is your answer? >> i think has to watch me over time. i think i've been not too much of a risk. they have seep exactly what they were going to get. what i was going to deliver.
that's just something they have that learn over time. take a deep breath. campaigns are about convincing people. the fact that it's eight months from today i have present of time to convince him. >> dickerson: we're here at webster place a drug treatment center, why do you think people end up here? >> all kinds of reasons john. some can be genetic in your make up. some are bad choices that lead people into a disease they can't find their way out out of. we can no longer incarcerate. we need to get treatment. this is a disease. every lives is precious. we need to give people to have the tools to be able to deal with. this this is a disease like anything else. quite frankly the war on drugs has been a failure. what we need to do is give people the tools we have
available us to, we know how to help people. let's do it. stop spending people on incarcerating nonviolent people that are drug addicted. every life can be saved is a miracle. >> dickerson: what is the president's role in that kind of issue? >> the bully bull pit is the first and most important. seeking drug and alcohol treatment. if you have president saying you're not a failure you're sick. we want to help you get better. we're going to in this country emphasize for the first time that this is a disease that we need to get people the treatment that they need to get better. that will move the needle significantly in our country for both lawmakers and for regular people in the neighborhoods to say we need to treat this differently. >> dickerson: you said marijuana is gateway drug, would you return federal prosecution in the case like colorado, washington state?
>> yes. dickerson: go after -- somebody enjoying that's getting turned off? >> correct. dickerson: how are you going to win colorado? >> people in colorado thought thrilled. we win any state you tell people the truth you weigh out your ideas, but i don't believe that people want to be told just what they want to hear they want to be told the person the truth. i'll go out in colorado, i've done that, not like i'm going to ander or hide, i say what i say. if you disagree, you disagrees. >> dickerson: let's switch to the question of common core. you used to say in 2013 the federal role federal role that's a bad idea. wouldn't straight talking chris christie say you're just changing because it's an election year and bad issue. >> i'm changing because i gave
it four years to work. not just other folks who dismissed it. already, give it a chance. see fit can wok work. but in four years we did not have educators or parents buy into common core. i can't tell you many people including my own sister who complained to me. if you are not buy can it, if i change my mind somebody like john dickerson is accusing me ever flip-flopping. that's the way the goes. if you give something four years which we did it doesn't work, you need to change. you owe it to the kids. >> dickerson: what about conservatives. you could have seen this coming a mile away. >> everybody is a genius in retrospect. the fact is that i thought this was worth giving it a try. we tried. it didn't work. that is what government does.
you engage in certain actions which you are hopeful will work when they don't work should you change course. not to stay stubborn because you're afraid. >> dickerson: thanks very much, governor. we go now to the mayor of new york bill de blasio. welcome to "face the nation," mr. mayor. i want to start the beginning with that question about voter participation. you heard what chris christie said about hillary clinton what is your reaction. >> first of all congratulations, taking over one of the great shows in television history, very, very happy for you. look i think what governor christie is taking distractions from the core point of the dialogue we have to have. we have democracy problem declining voter turn out that hillary clinton put forebarred a national strategy to get people involved. obviously to address the many efforts that have been made by
republicans to repress voter involvement. i think governor christie should speak to the proposal rather than just attacking personally. >> dickerson: you talk about national strategy but single out republicans, new york city democratic town, has very restrictive voting rules hillary clinton didn't mention that by making it so political doesn't it undermine her case? >> she's saying the right thing about a national vision. we have to get to voting across the country have to sim pli file registration. get rid of these efforts to repress voter involvement. our for long time i believe we need to make fundamental series of reforms. people in the political mass have tried to discourage voter involvement. prefer a very small electorate. time to do away with that status
quote get the american people back to democratic process. >> dickerson: your sort to make the lead in shaping the conversation for your party. you have 13-point plan that includes things like raising minimum wage, setting minimal level. when you look at the democratic stapped date which one most closely embodies the vision you like to see in a candidate? >> first of all our progressive 'general talk see all the details, it is predicated on notion that the american people more and more are demanding solutions to the economic challenges we face. the great resection hasn't ended for so many americans. for the last 25 years typical american family has gone backwards. we call for increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour nationally over the coming years things like paid sick leave and paid family leave for families,
progressive taxation. i think these have become more the standard that the american people are demanding answers on you saw the cbs poll that shows that people want real solutions as for democratic field each of the candidates is beginning to doctor dress these issues. i'm waiting to hearing fuller. >> dickerson: in cluing from hillary clinton? >> absolutely. >>ed y when i talk to democratic pollsters when voters hear that there are some people that when they hear income and equality they think their taxes are going to go up 134. >> i've heard that. i find it not disingenuous, but narrow minded. people in the professional political class consultant and pollsters not listening to what
is happening on the ground. why did the cbs poll show overwhelming concern this week all over the country people saying look, regular people can't get ahead any longer only folks who can do well are the wealthiest. you saw so clearly in the poll that the american dream has been profounding watered down they captain make it to the middle class. poll out of iowa that caucus goers were explicit they want candidates to address income and equality. i think what's happening in some of the inside the beltway thinking they don't like the sound that were word but it gets to the heart of the water. right now our economic system not serving huge percentage of our people. we should be blunt about it. about the fact the gross income disparity. i think people want that. >> dickerson: switch to security. there was a plot thwarted this week in boston.
nova scotia has been a target. what is your feeling about these attacks is new york greater threat than ever? >> i'm sorry to say we have always been the number bon terror target since this recent fa no, ma'am no, ma'am of terrorism of al qaeda, isis, we are constantly vigilant. we have a thousand nypd officers who target. that's the reality that we'll be in that constant state. that being said. tremendous partnership and our federal partners, the fbi we've been able to together thwart number of attacks. of course is unsettling because it could be individual there's no indication of that being said blunt low we saw that in a different way in a newtown or come imbibe we seep lone wolves, our job to see the warning signs
>> dickerson: back now with the chairman of the house homeland security michael mccaul. mr. chairman i want to ask you about this massive data breach we heard about some foyer million former current government employees. these seem to happen regularly is this the new normal what is the next thing we need to be worried about. >> it's been honor to be art part of our inaugural show. it's very significant we look at the threat indicators who has motive and intent to steal this. it's a huge data mining process it targeted the federal
government and four million of these in my judgment this was an attack by china against united states government. it quantity files espionage that raises all sorts of issues. >> dickerson: if i could be clear you mean china a got government as opposed to a person in china. >> the go back to the source has not been confirmed by united states government. i believe that all threatened cavitiers point to the fact that it is china perhaps nation state sponsored because of the way it was done. it was not done to steal credit card information. it that kind of theft it was done to get to the personal information on political appoint tease to ex complete them later down road they can use those for espionage to recruit spice or
compromise. >> dickerson: in terms of responses, shut a door or punch back? do you use computer -- >> i think this is an area where there are no rules of the game. in terms of espionage. i think raises all sources of issues with americans. anthem was attack against health care records of americans. blue cross blue shield. think from the same source out of china to steal data not only on fed ram employees to have a large database against -- >> dickerson: switch to this incident in boston. self radicalization. what is your feeling about that? >> the biggest concern that the fbi has and homeland security officials has we've gone beyond days of bin laden to new generation terrorists to use
internet through twitter accounts to activate followers in the united states. these recruiters out of syria are very sophisticated on the internet through their twitter accounts, they have thousands of followers online in the united states can send call to arms to activate to attack, in this case, police officers in the boston case or military installations as well. this is very hard thing to stop, hard thing for fbi and homeland to monitor when you talk about new wave of terrorism this is pretty much it. >> dickerson: you were also in iraq and other regions where there are foreign fighters talk about that? >> that's a dual threat. we have the radically aches of the internet that i just talked about with the the foreign fighter that travels to the region, the syria and 'rack they come back. we went over there to try to
close security gaps with respect to travel. istanbul 40 million passengers apt the airport per year, that is the epicenter of the transit for foreign fighters. they go through there to western europe into the united states. western europe has almost no rules in terms who have they let in and out and then visa waiver to get into the united states. that's my biggest concern. >> dickerson: that's airports over there. our airports didn't have a good week. >> dismal performance. just got classified briefing it's been record, 95% failure rate we know that al qaeda and the arabian peninsula are targeting aircraft and such. with the high threat environment that we're in right now this is totally unacceptable.
>> dickerson: chairman, thanks very much. appreciate it. >> thank you john. dickerson: we'll be right back. more and more, data is visual. in fact, the number of mris has increased by ten percent a year. and a radiologist might view a thousand images to find one tiny abnormality in shape, contrast or movement. because it's so challenging a research project is teaching ibm watson to see.
in the future, it could help clinicians spot key patterns quickly and precisely. ibm watson is working to make healthcare smarter every day. the beast was as long as the boat. for seven hours, we did battle. until i said... you will not beat... meeeeee!!! greg. what should i do with your fish? gary. just put it in the cooler. if you're a fisherman, you tell tales. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance you switch to geico. it's what you do. put the fish in the cooler!
>> dickerson: when we come back we'll talk to the latest republican contender rick perry is on the trail and jill join us in just a moment. stay with us. pport hospitals using electronic health records for more than 30 million patients? or that our software helps over 20 million smartphone users remotely configure e-mail every month? or how about processing nearly $5 billion in electronic toll payments a year? in fact, today's xerox is working in surprising ways to help companies simplify the way work gets done and life gets lived. with xerox, you're ready for real business.
>> dickerson: wall come back too fakes the nation. rick perry joins us from the campaign trail in new hampshire welcome, governor. i want to start by saying, why are you going to do better this time than fours years ago? >> i would suggest that's the case. we're healthy and well helped. spent a lot of name entire, south carolina, that plays great dividends just in itself. >> dickerson: i listened to your speeches and announcement it seems like you were saying the governor has certain set of skills and senators need not even apply to this presidential job, is that what you mean? >> anybody can apply. i think the facts are that governors do that have that executive experience particularly someone with 14 years that have executive experience that no one gave knee a handbook says here is how you handle the hurricanes.
how you handle ebola how you handle crisis. that only comes with that executive experience that's what i'm asking americans to take a look at. here is how we run the 12th largest economy in the world. don't you think those policies, that focus on economics is what we need at the white house at this particular point in time? obviously the preparation on foreign policy that i've done and dealing with those issues is also i think selling point that americans are going to look at say that executive experience does matter. >> dickerson: what the senators have been saying yes executive experience, you learned to make decisions, if you don't understand that they do you can be given option a and b but you don't know option c exists. >> well, i disagree with that analysis obviously. we took chance on young
inexperienced united states senator back in 2008 and both economically and foreign policy wise i think most observers would say that we find ourselves in rather a pickle, if you will. economically and foreign policy. our allies don't know whether to trust america. because the lack of experience that this president and his inability to connect the dots and so, i think executive experience, it's really interesting to me that this business that we find ourselves in the political side in governing only place that you would discount experience. you get on airliner going to chicago, to london you want the most experienced pilot that be should be the same for the next leader. >> on the campaign trail you've been hitting the books since last presidential race what is the most important thing you've learned in all of your studies? >> obviously spent lot of time
with foreign policy. with people with the hoover institute. with the henry kissingers, the initiative folks. those are individuals with extraordinary deep understand can of foreign policy. sitting at the table with james ricard and fisher with opposite side of these issues. that is the type of preparation that is the type of experience that you want to be table to tap into on issues that you would face on whether it's monetary, domestic policy, foreign policy also keeping in mind i think that you need to have a president who understands that all wisdom emanates out of washington, d.c. that you have to trust these governors and these states to come up with the right concepts and right ideas to frankly experiment out there in america. that makes for great competition and stronger country.
>> dickerson: ask you something about what you said. the american people see a rigged game where insiders get rich and middle class pays the tab. that's coming from you we talked to mayor de blasio from new york, could have come from him or senator warren in massachusetts. talk about that a little bit. >> a boy who grew up on a cotton farm the child of couple of farmers i grew up in a house that didn't have running water. i relate to people who struggle and work hard to get ahead. and when we see these wall street bankers we lock back at general motors getting sweet treatment, if you will, i believe in the bankruptcy laws in that country there is nothing too big to fail when it comes from banks or where it comes to big corporate entities. americans are fed up, i am, by seeing wall street being treated, you captain get alien
from your community frank. all that has a to change. americans are fed up with that type of inside where the rich get richer and folks out on main street have to pay bills. >> dickerson: what are you going to do about wall street, then? >> regulate them. make sure that that doesn't happen. if they make bad decisions don't bail them out. >> dickerson: isn't that what dodd frank is regulation? you were saying that was bad? >> dodd frank is killing the community banks over regulation. and that sense. there needs to be some wisdom. my home state one of the things that we were successful with fighting that balance between protecting the citizens allowing freedom for folks to grow to be able to get loans to be able to do the things that really matter.
got to give them the freedom. >> dickerson: get your reaction, hillary clinton attack can directly listen to what she said then i'll get your reaction. >> here in texas former governor rick perry sign add law that federal court said was actually written with the purpose of discriminating against minority voters. he applauded when voting rights act was gutted and said the loss of protection were outdated and unnecessary. >> dickerson: your reaction. hillary clinton said, there aren't a whole host of cases of voter fraud this is something you're just trumping up, your reaction? >> i think that the people of the state of texas overwhelmingly support voter
identification and that's what this is really about. hillary clinton believes that all wisdom emanates out of washington d.c. she's the classic washington insider. she wants washington to take this over. we've seen this with the affordable care act. we've seen it with education policy. if you think that washington needs to be controlling our voting and our oversight for voting i don't agree with that. i think most americans believe that the governors legislators and overwhelmingly passed in the state of texas. she's looking at the people of texas and other state with voter identification laws saying we don't trust you. >> dickerson: we'll have to leave it there. thank you. we'll be right back.
what are his chances. >> you get second chance to make a first impression. i take him very seriously. i think it is a mistake to say because he had such catastrophic experience also time around that we should not take him seriously i think you sawment kind of confidence and manner, the comfortable manner he has in the interview that you just d. also goodability with his party. he's from texas that's part of the country that republican party is strongest. he does seem both more serious and a little more prepared i think this time around. >> dickerson: let me ask you about chris christie the other fellow we heard from. what about him. what are his chances? >> first congratulations. this reminds me of what it must have been lick to take the first fast ball from nolan ryan. chris christie is really made for the times. at least his brand.
straight talker, all the things he told you that he was going to be about. if that was the interview to be in new hampshire. he's muddled messed up, even destroyed the brand. bridgegate he failed the test of what kind of people you put around you and what kind of tone you set. the budget problems in new jersey and other problems in new jersey don't reflect well. >> i have to say that one part of your interview struck me when you were asking him about common core. few things that he does better than just about anybody. when he said, i haven't flip-flopped. we tried it out. i changed my mind. a lot of politics try to argue that they never changed their mind. but on this issue and others that could tie him up within his own party he's willing to say not that i mid a mistake but that, like everything in life if it's not working you thought it would, you try something else.
>> it looked like very -- >> other big problems in this field that the rest of the camps are good. if it worked four years ago i think they would be great candidates. against jeb bush, michael rubio scott walker, their problem is what do you have that we don't already have in this field. >> and it's knew. dickerson: ask you about rand paul and he took on pratt had a little victory not what he wanted give me a sense of rapid paul. >> his campaign won't say how much he raised because the race is note about that. his republicans colleagues would beg to differ he did energize that slice of the electorate. as he is, you have field as crowded as this one devoted slice can take you a long way.
on the other hand he showed when he's under pressure he tends to say things that don't come across as extremely presidential. >> another problem with the patriot act developments in the world. it's actually he thinks chinese government hack of federal employment records here we've had isis and terrible brutality. that hits rand paul. >> dickerson: do you think this this issue of surveillance, rand paul is bank can on whole bunch of people are counting on this. >> i think he's right. there is a large number of people who are very anxious about government surveillance. i think his problem in the context of republican primary people aren't there. some of them are there. if he wants to become consensus candidate those are not the
people who are going to take them there. sort of out of step with the kind of people we need to be instead with on this one issue even with in general election he'd be -- would be great player. >> i agree with what everybody is saying. let's give the guy some credit. this issue and judicial reform is not taking right or left. they are this is new era make up for the mistakes. and appeal to the rising voters in this country. >> to that point i think paul will be influential. christie's entire r tire thing could have come from the mouth of rand paul i don't think that's some weird coincidence. >> and the democrats too. they're on the wrong side of nsa. >> dickerson: nice segue. let me ask you, hillary clinton took a big swing at bunch of her
republican opponents what was behind that? >> one thing is democratic concern about all these voter laws aimed at what republicans see as voter fraud. that very limited, just a little bit of difference. if you have election like in 2000 they could make the difference. there is concern that these laws -- >> seeing big effort that hillary clinton unveiled to try to push back against these laws, fight them in the courts, in the state legislators. but they do energize certain segment. these laws could make a difference in a very close election. >> she's been on defense ever since she got into this election sending off questions about the e-mails and foundation. her supporters thought it was about time to get on offense against her opponents who had
been hitting her for months. >> these laws go back to 17845 when farmers had a d on their farms had to be in the market wednesday. couple of thing have happened. like the telegraph and internet. these laws have got to be modernized brought into digital age. burt is she person who can get it done or another politics that makes a lot of promises, she divides rather than unites. that who be my worry. it's got to be done. i don't know yet. >> do you see any larger strategy here for hillary clinton in picking this issue? he makes a correct point we have policy question heres it easier to vote but also political to what she's trying to d. what is your sense of the larger political strategies coming out of this? >> she is trying to -- obviously
reconstitute. but energize particular groups that are absolutely vital. if you look at obama's margins in ohio in 201 in virginia those are margins that come from voting enthusiasm. if she can show african american voters that she will help their direct citizens. that can go long way towards repeating that performance. if she can get that kind of turn out among african americans in those states then that's something the election. that is a win. >> that's my problem. she appeals to one small segment. this too be an issue for all playing under rules that are two centuries old a good leader would make it matter. >> i don't think those things are mutually exclusive. she adds, i'm not doing this for you this particular group of
people but this is united states, it is wrong for americans to be -- >> what are we hearing out of her campaign? >> i think. this is point where everyone is playing to their base. it's really -- >> but who isn't. whether trying to fire up their supporters because we're in situation in 2015 we don't have as many people in the middle that you can go to try to beat the other guy. you have to get your supporters, the obama pact in 2008 and 2012 not the bill clinton path of the 1909s. clearly that she's decided that's the way. >> but the point is, if you want to stand out maybe that's the way to do it. comes across as somebody not in washington, i agree he's got problems seriously problems, he's not in washington, somebody who will tell you the truth is he going to get pros muted in colorado for smoke soming
marijuana. that is refreshing. >> i won't say that clinton path in '92 and '96 was good. but also never scored majority of voters. obama may be paler. but to break 50% twice. >> dickerson: what we're talking about here is electorate that we have seen before. that really is all about the way the campaigns are looking at it appeal to the team, the whole idea of people in the middle who might be appealed to are there enough to turn -- >> majority of them. why don't they vote? because of the laws? they have no reason to vote. not being inspired. nothing to getting done. both parties are capitulating.
legs do this thing called negative partisanship. now a policy of all parties. not about inspiring everybody. get people to vote for me. getting vote against the other side certainly talk about promise to do in 2008. >> dickerson: in other words only caring about hillary clinton there are other democratic candidates. give me sense of the race, what is your sense of the democratic race. >> if the metric system takes off, perfect ly -- not challenger i would look to. i would look to bernie sanders who has done surprisingly well. hard to imagine he gets a nomination but he's getting big crowds in iowa and new hampshire he's causing problems for hillary clinton because he's nothing but authentic and trying
to decide who she positions herself. because democratic party to moving to the left on the issues, but talking about a state like virginia if you're going to win virginia lot are in the middle. >> dickerson: you talked to martin owe pally where is he? >> i agree with susan. here is a guy who has relatively progressive record, he can position himself as a can-do pragmatic, metrics driven leader. i don't think he can beat it. but going to give her radio tough fight. one thing that both martin o'malley and bernie sanders blow up basically the clinton engineer debate system. talking to some of the liberal groups who like to have their own debate. that can be interesting. >> dickerson: thank you all very much for joining me on the first time here. for all of you out there stay with us, we'll be right back with more "face the nation."
